Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients
  

Roasted Pepitas

  • 1 cup Pepitas raw pumpkin seeds without shells
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil extra virgin
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Salt

Pumpkin Sage Hummus

  • 1 15 ounce can Chickpeas garbanzo beans
  • 1 15 ounce can Pumpkin
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil extra virgin
  • 2 tablespoons Tahini
  • 11 Sage Leaves fresh
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • pinch Cayenne Pepper optional
  • sprinkle Paprika

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sage Infused Oil

  • Add ¼ cup oil and 8 sage leaves to a small saucepan and place over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, let cool, and then discard the leaves.

Roasted Pepitas

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the pepitas, olive oil, cumin, garlic powder, and salt.
  • Spread onto a baking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes or until brown. Set aside.

Pumpkin Sage Hummus

  • Place the chickpeas in a small bowl of water and gentry rub them between your fingers to remove the skins.
  • Place the chickpeas in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds on high.
  • Place the chickpeas, pumpkin, 3 tablespoons of the sage infused oil, tahini, cumin, garlic powder, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and salt into a food processor. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth.
  • Place into a bowl and garnish with the remaining 1 tablespoon sage infused olive oil, some roasted pepitas and a sprinkling of paprika for color.
  • Finely mince the remaining 3 sage leaves and add for additional garnish.

Notes

  • Removing the skins from the chickpeas is not necessary, but will give you a smoother consistency.
  • Heating up the chickpeas will help them to blend better.
  • Hummus can be used as a dip for crackers and raw vegetables, or as a spread on your favorite sandwich or wrap.
Enjoy!
